The Beaulieu River has launched a new promotional video starring the people that matter the most – their sailors!
Based in the heart of the New Forest, the natural beauty of the Beaulieu River has earned it a reputation as one of the most peaceful sailing destinations on the south coast. Now its beauty and tranquillity are showcased in a new promotional video, featuring some of the sailors who call Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour and the Beaulieu River their home.
Filmed by local production company Robin Creative Media, the shoot took place in September 2020 following the completion of phase 1 of the Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour redevelopment. A gorgeous sunrise and early morning mist were followed by bright blue skies as the generous volunteer sailors prepared for their starring roles.
As well as permanent mooring holders, the filming also captured visiting rally participants, paddleboarders, and even a few dogs! All filming was undertaken in a Covid-secure way, with the safety and wellbeing of the cast and crew the first priority.
Harbour Master Wendy Stowe said:
A big thank you to everyone who took part in the video. The Beaulieu River has a friendly and welcoming community, so it’s wonderful to be able to feature some of the people who help make it such a special place. The team from Robin Creative Media were great to work with and we’re thrilled with the final result.
Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour has now begun the second and final phase of their redevelopment to increase capacity and improve services, and have already begun taking reservations for an additional 35 berths which will be available by April 2021.
Harbour Master Wendy Stowe and her team will continue to provide swinging moorings while work is underway this winter, enabling visiting sailors to continue to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unique environment. Although overnight stays are not permitted during the national lockdown, visitor buoys remain available for short daytime visits from local sailors as part of an outdoor exercise regime.
